Volvo Troubles
By Mike R. on


1999 Volvo V70 T5 Turbo 4dr Wagon


We've owned this car for 7 years and have spent close to $5,000 in unscheduled repairs. Our list: -Brakes and rotors-headlight switch- motor mounts-ABS module-heater core- throttle body (twice)-power window motor-dash repair-cupholder replaced- power steering seals-many headlights/tail lights. Our car is not abused and only dealer serviced. It is very expensive to operate and any visit to the service shop will cost a minimum $120 for a diagnostic. I will never buy Volvo again.

Best Features

Good looks for a wagon and turbo power.

Worst Features

Volvo should just get it right or take responablity for what SHOULD be covered by warranty. Design brakes to not require new rotors every other change. Design a real cup holder.
